• Enter key and quit

    From Night_Flyer@VERT to All on Sun Mar 18 06:48:33 2007
    Im venturing into my first real foray into Baja outside of binding keys on my main menu...

    so far so good, but I cant seem to find where to bind the enter key to a default action.

    basically I want it to behave like a quit. hit enter and the program defaults to the end.

    what Im working on is a one liner (actually Im butchering anothers previous work) and I want it to say "Want to add a quote?" Y[N] where N is the default key and it exits the program at that point.

    thanks for any pointers

    This isn't exactly the answer to your question but have a look at BAJA's useful "NO_YES" verb.

    Enter in response to what? GETSTR or GETKEY or GETCMD?

    GETSTR will return a blank (empty) string in response to the user just hitting the enter key, where as GETKEY/CMD will set the current command key to '\r'.

    See http://synchro.net/docs/baja.html#CommandKeyConstants for more details.

    "\r" means return key right?

    Enter in response to what? GETSTR or GETKEY or GETCMD?

    the current code is for a GETCMD
    -----
    getcmd YN\r?
    logkey

    cmdkey N
    goto theend
    end_cmd

    cmdkey Y
    goto write
    end_cmd
    -----
    hitting the return key sends me to "Y"

    all I want it to do is behave the same as "N"



    GETSTR will return a blank (empty) string in response to the user just hitting the enter key, where as GETKEY/CMD will set the current command key to '\r'.

    so how do you set the current command key? The Yes_no works fine, but Yes is highlighted :/

    here's what I did to get it to work, but I have a feeling that it was a hack job

    getcmd NY\r?
    logkey

    cmdkey N
    goto theend
    end_cmd

    cmdkey Y
    goto write
    end_cmd

    compare_str ""
    if_true
    goto theend
    end_if

    From baja.html:

    If a RETURN or GOTO function will be
    executed before the END_CMD function, then a CMD_POP function must be executed to tell the interpreter to "forget" the previous CMD_HOME function.

    So looks like you're missing some CMD_POP calls in there.

    hitting the return key sends me to "Y"

    Interesting. I don't see why it would.

    all I want it to do is behave the same as "N"

    So create a cmdkey \r block.

    GETSTR will return a blank (empty) string in response to the user just hitting the enter key, where as GETKEY/CMD will set the current command k to '\r'.

    so how do you set the current command key?

    UNGETKEY

    The Yes_no works fine, but Yes is highlighted :/

    So use the NO_YES function instead.

    all the examples I looked at didnt have that in there (that I noticed any way) the "cmdkey \r" call worked so ill leave that in... Thanks.

    dont know how much more of this I want to play with considering its mosly doing what I want.

    Since this is for a one liner wall, is there a way to get the length of the _useron.alias?

    and with that info cut off the number of characters available in the get line?

    X = 50
    getline line1 X K_UPPER|K_ALPHA|NOCRLF

    If you're not using CMD_HOME, then you don't need it.

    Use STRLEN

    and with that info cut off the number of characters available in the get lin

    X = 50
    getline line1 X K_UPPER|K_ALPHA|NOCRLF

    If you want to know the *maximum* length of _useron.alias, use the LEN_ALIAS constant (defined in userdefs.inc).

    Use STRLEN

    when I compile I get an error stating that _useron.alias is an INT?!?

    heres what Im trying to do

    80 characters - overhead (7 characters) - username length = input box size

    the above should be simple... but for some reason it isnt...

    I played with it a bit more and got it to work, not sure what I was doing wrong, but now it does the equasion I was trying to accomplish, so users message + users name wont go over 80 characters together
